Nevaeh Lleh Posted September 12, 2017 Posted September 12, 2017 (edited) The male and female leads somewhat bore the same character traits: 1. Rachel and Penny (America's Sweetheart/girl-next-door who goes from waitress to career woman) 2. Ross and Leonard (girl-next-door's whiny boyfriend) 3. Joey and Howard (playboy) 4. Chandler and Raj (has trouble with women) 5. Phoebe and Amy (weird; plays musical instrument) 6. Monica and Bernadette (short-tempered and bossy) 7. Recurring characters Gunther and Stuart (always gets the short end of the stick; also by coincidence, the guy who plays Gunther used to work in a coffee shop, and the guy who plays Stuart used to work in a comic book store). In Sheldon's case, since TBBT has FOUR male leads, the only thing I can point out is that he and Monica both have OCD. Yes, I know I'm stretching this a little too far, since both shows' characters are entirely different in terms of the "nerd" factor: 1. Joey is dimwitted and suave while Howard is intelligent and creepy. 2. Chandler just has a bit of a complex, as opposed to Raj who is flat-out socially awkward. Also in terms of opposite coincidences, Michael Rapaport played characters who were on "both sides of the law" in "Friends" (police officer) and TBBT (illegally sold liquid helium).
